IFP - Individual & Family Plans
UHC has never sold an IFP plan in CA under their brand name, They ran it all through PacifiCare, a crappy HMO
they bought for six bucks and a starbucks gift card.
Again, nothing new here. Everyone has to change carriers coming off of UHC group coverage. It was never an option in CA. We don't have Humana either.

These employees will have to find a new insurance company that also has their medical providers in-network. They will then have to register their new insurance credentials with their medical provider(s).
It would have been much easier and familiar territory to simply get an Individual United Health policy after going through the shock of losing health insurance at work.
